What!?! My house has arrived home!

Oh my goodness! The cutest little quilt has arrived home! I love it.
Marie the red birds above the house and wow! that's some tiny piecing!
Christa, those trees were a stroke of genius. They fit in so well that I had to take another look to realize that I had put one in to begin with!
Terri, the quilting is adorable. I love the sheep in the clouds...I get it--counting sheep! Let's see, I've found flowers, an electrical wire above the house (is that not against code?), snakes in the grass, windows in that orange door, a CAT in the corner of the house with the shingled roof and plank walls.

We ought to be close!

I can feel it in my bones!

I can’t wait to see where some of my ideas ended up.


Finished quilt received from Liz

My little quilt arrived home this week. Thanks to everyone who had a part it making it so special.

It's On Its Way...

Hi Mary M, I mailed your finished block today. The PO says 3 days until it gets there. I'm sorry it took me so long to get it to you and I hope you enjoy the quilting. I had a lot of fun finding motifs and adding little surprises in the quilting. The hardest one to find is the cat. I think I'm the only one who can tell what it is and that's only because I put it there!

Recieved My Quilt from Allison

I'm not sure who worked on my quilt block, but I know that Allison was the final person and she sent me the finished quilt.

I was so excited to find my quilt in the mailbox the other day. It was wonderful. I loved how everyone carried out the colors and details of my block into the borders. I love the quilting. I am working hard at my quilting motifs, and I loved see the ones used on my quilt. Thank you to the lovely ladies who worked on it and gave me such a nice finished piece!

Back Home!

My wee block arrived home this week transformed!  Thank you Tish, Diana and Rachel for your lovely work.  The way you all worked with the minimal block is fascinating.  The quilting is stupendous!

Traceyann  :-)


Christa, my quilt arrived yesterday in the post and its a lovely piece. After some discussion about which way was up (the kinda-like-a-rainbow way or the kinda-like-the-millennium-falcon way) , it's now hanging in my hallway. (The question over orientation is entirely my own fault for sending asking such an abstract starting piece...) thanks so much to all who worked on it.

Welcome home!

Marie , my Cotton Robin baby arrived today and it is so fabulous! Thanks to the wonderful team who worked on my quilt. Peggy❤️

Going out again

Terri's quilt came back to me this morning so I went to mail it again. It seems the zip code I had was wrong. Thanks to google, I should have the right one now. I put it in express so it should get to you by Thursday Terri.

Status update - finished quilts

Most of the finished quilts have already made it home or are on their way. A few are running late for one reason or another. Please let me know if I don't have the latest information.

  • One quilt is temporarily missing (I suspect it's taken the slow boat) - I am still waiting for the last round to quilt from Marie for Allison
  • One quilt is being sent late from Christa to Kate - Christa will be close by to Kate in the UK and it made sense to wait to mail it locally
  • One quilt is running late and should be sent by Nan to Rachel soon
  • One quilt I do not have a status on - this is from Terri to Mary
  • Eight quilts have arrived safely home
  • Seven more are in transit - please let me know when you receive yours Terri, Tish, Marie, Peggy, Traceyann, Christa, (& me)

The big reveal will definitely be late - I will keep you all posted on updates.

Received my WH

I received my wall hanging from Texas.  It is so perfect. I love the embellishments.  Thank you Cotton Robin quilters.

Poetry - needs a litte work, but you get it


Little quilts in the mail
Some by air, some by sail.

Speed your way
Through night and day.

Because we are all hopin'
To have a package to open!

Then without fail
Laurina will unveil

The best quilts ever done
To each and every one!

(taking a bow) I just thought that up!

Quilt for Laurina

I posted your quilt today. They said it would take a couple of weeks to arrive. Sorry it's late...

Home again

Clare gave me my quilt last week, I love it and thank you to all who worked on it.
Cannot wait to see all the finished quilts.

Received My Quilt Today

Peggy, thank you so much for the letter.  You are so right, it has been a week of disappointing things.  Shingles, cancelling my surgery, dealing with the intense pain.

I can definitely say, this little quilt is the most perfect high point, and much needed spot of joy!

I even think this is the best of the best of the best one I ever received!!!!!

Thanks to all who worked on my piece, everything came together so perfectly!!!

I can’t wait for you to see it!!!

Still hurting, but better today!  I have only taken half the pain pills so far today.  Every step forward!

Coming and Going...

About a week ago I got my tiny quilt from Tish. Since I wasn’t home, and won’t be home until Saturday, my daughter opened it for me. She said it is beautiful and “It is just so YOU, Mom! You are going to love it!” She knows me pretty well, so thank you to everyone who worked on my quilt. I can’t wait to see it!
Rachel’s quilt will be in the mail to her as soon as I can get the binding on it.

Modern Robin

Some years ago, at least 3 or 4 because it was before the flood, I organized a Modern Robin in
The Baton Rouge Modern Quilt Guild. My first block was the shoes and part of the dress.  To make it work I changed some of the timeframes and added a month and another round. Renee did the embellishment and quilting on mine
and saw Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz. So she added the yellow brick road!
